Moke lake paddle

Had a great day with our guide, Kat, paddling around Moke lake!? The lake setting was beautiful,lots of ducks and jumping fish amongst the reeds . We had a break and Kat made some tea and shared cookies with us as we took in the scenery?.I have to say that one of the highlights was just enjoying the company of our guide, talking about all of our lives and travels and sharing some laughs?All and all a great day! Thank you Paddle Queenstown and Kat ?
